• I’m trying out Beeper, but it feels like, as with these “all your chat app in one app” apps, it has the worst UI of all of the apps combined.

  • Cleaning always sends me deep into the emotional side of my brain.

    Doing just enough with my hands to so I can’t be distracted by a book or phone, and enough time for my brain to dig into the darker corners that don’t get as much attention day to day.

  • After 8+ months of bashing my head against a VS Code window, I somehow managed to move my blog over to Ghost.

    Hopefully the DNS cache has propagated by the time you maybe click the link. 🙏

  • I love having a portable set up so I can work from anywhere. 😜

    A Mac Studio hooked up to a monitor on a desk that is not my usual location in front of a fireplace.

  • I did a calculation just to hurt my brain: what years would my youngest’s “Mad Men” series be based on if they watched it at the same age as I did.

    It would be based on 1998-2005 era life. 👴🏼

  • After a week with kids at home all day, everyone is finally out of the house for the final couple hours today. What will I do with all this mental time and space? 🤩

    (Proceeds to scroll TikTok for 3hrs.)

  • This little filter is the magic behind so many garbage (and even moderately ok) recordings that run through my Logic Pro set up.

  • Have you heard the audio “don’t ask me how I did it it was hard” on any platform yet?

  • This is me.

    Just getting my existence validated and verified by the internet. 👋

  • I’m loving working around inside Ghost CMS' UI, but this dialogue box makes me want to throw my computer into the ocean.

    No context. No support doc link. Clearly never used by someone trying to actually move content into Ghost that isn’t a power user / developer wizard.

  • I still don’t understand how people actually live in cities like Boston, New York, London, San Francisco, Sydney, Mexico City, etc. Those are imaginary places that exist in movies, books, and tv series - not in real life.

  • Why is RSS not an option for importing content from one blog CMS to another? It has every detail you need for content of blog posts and yet it’s rare for a CMS to offer that as an import option.

    In podcasting, that’s the default option for how to move your podcast to another podcast host.

  • It’s not a good day to look at Twitter in Canada when this is trending. 😆🤦‍♂️

  • One fun aspect of podcast editing as a solo business is when you find out a client has moved on because you see a new episode pop up in their feed that you didn’t work on.

  • The new dynamic Keynote themes look like fun. I haven’t had a need to give a presentation in 5+ years, but it makes me want to put one together again.

  • Nothing about the images people share of spatial personas in Apple Vision Pro makes me want to get one. I’m sure inside VR / AR it’s great and impressive.

  • This is what I’ll point to when people say “Discord is killing forums!” 🤦‍♂️

    A question from a forum reading “Hi,&10;I would like to include RSS feeds in a sidebar. Do you have suggestions for where to look?” with an answer reading “Any JavaScript that does this will work.”

  • My annual spring make work project is to shovel snow off my front yard onto the sunny patches of my driveway in a futile attempt to ward off snow mold and other grass killing things.

    This is mirrored by my summer make work project of trying to grow grass on my front yard. Also futile.

  • Does Ghost do any sort of URL redirecting? If I’m moving a blog over that has a /year/month/post-name structure, will Ghost do any magic to redirect that to just /post-name/?

  • A friend was over and casually commented on how “…as middle aged people commenting on the strike and support for teachers, it’s great to have your support…” and my brain nearly exploded at the accuracy but also the reality I hadn’t fully grasped or accepted.

  • 7 Wonders is a fun game to play multiple times in an evening so you can remember how simple it is to play, yet difficult to win.
